Description

A Director Prepares is a thought-provoking examination of the challenges of making theatre. In it, Anne Bogart speaks
candidly and with wisdom of the courage required to create 'art with great presence'.
Each chapter tackles one of the seven major areas Bogart has identified as both potential partner and potential
obstacle to art-making. They are Violence; Memory; Terror; Eroticism; Stereotype; Embarrassment; and Resistance. Each
one can be used to generate extraordinary creative energy, if we know how to use it.
A Director Prepares offers every practitioner an extraordinary insight into the creative process. It is a handbook,
Bible and manifesto, all in one. No other book on the art of theatre comes even close to offering this much
understanding, experience and inspiration.
